(Excerpt) Read more at c-span.org ...
Cruz made a point that they all had hours throughout the night to come in...they didnt..
I despise when people like Senator Prune-Face Reid say: “My friend from Texas...” FU! He is not your friend!
Lee was awesome! Transcript of his statements should be on every newspaper and blog in the country (in a sane world -— I can dream)
Cubicle and firewall bound. Is McCain speaking now?
Magnificent describes it perfectly. Should be shown in every HS History/govt class in the U.S.
Why would Harry be lobbying for InSain if they didnt have an agreement. What a traitor....
Absolutely....Cruz snuffed this out yet again...Mcbain is worse than a democrat...
Amen, caww...that says it all.
Reid asked Cruz if he would give McCain his 15 minutes....he also threw out that he would allow until 1 pm. Cruz wouldn’t bite. Poor McCain wouldn’t even come in himself and speak - he had to send Harry in to ask permission. Wuss.
I think McCain and Reid hatched a plot that they would let Cruz have until 1 pm but the price would be McCain speaking — and McCain would go on a one hour rant to try to undo what Cruz has accomplished. Cruz recognized he was trying to be bamboozled and did not fall for it.
That felt go to watch.:)
Yes, I did see Mike Lee early this morning. He was masterful.
We are seeing the future leaders of America yesterday and today, and I include Sarah Palin in that as well.
Once again she has gone into media hell to raise the profile of Cruz, Lee, and others who are daring to fight “the law of the land”.
McCain does more than surrender, he collaborates.
Rand Paul just tweeted he is back in the Senate now.
That was a "I paid for this microphone, Mr. Speaker," moment. He is magnificent.
Cruz is fighting for our nation and Reid is destroying it.
Dear Lord, you live in Moron’s district?
I’ll say prayers for you!
I worked for McSlarrow way back when and saw Moron’s evil up close....
No...Cruz maintained his stance and control of the floor...Reid is the one who asked Cruz to yield to MCain...
What cowards and traitors!
Cruz declined the request for McCain.
HEY EVERYBODY-—SAW THAT SENATOR CRUZ IS SUPPOSED TO BE ON RUSH TODAY!!!!!
